"Born with a brick in your stomach....”
The exhibition BRIQUE, exhibits the work of six Belgium artists. Five of them work in different media, but all have a clear affinity with ‘the figure', broken down and rebuilt, in fragments and abstraction. BRIQUE revers not only to construction and deconstruction in the work but also to the 'building mania' in Belgium.
The sixth artist Hans Demeulenaere searches for the boundaries between scenography and installation and will build a sculptural installation with the use of bricks. His intervention integrates the works from Brouckaert, Coolen, Cotteleer, Leblon and Serneels in a monumental sculptural installation and will be reacting on the old industrial architecture of the exhibition space Quartair.
Flemish art historian and curator Stef Van Bellingen wrote an accompanying essay and will open the exhibition.
